Joseph L. Hudson Papers

Description

Joseph L. Hudson, Jr., a noted businessman and civic leader, chaired the New Detroit Committee in the aftermath of the city's 1967 uprising. After one year, the New Detroit Committee had achieved some success in advancing the establishment of job recruitment and training programs, but challenges remained in gaining the confidence of the city's residents. New Detroit thus decided to incorporate in August 1968, at which time Hudson resigned as chairman and was succeeded by Max Fisher. Hudson continued his involvement with New Detroit through the 1970s and 1980s, however, by serving on its board of trustees.

University of Michigan Alumnae Council Survey Responses, 1924

Description

In 1924, the Alumnae Council of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan mailed a survey to the more than 3,000 women currently in attendance and to over 7,000 who had attended the University going back to the year 1870, when women were first admitted. The survey questionnaires asked for biographical information as well as occupations, leadership positions, and queried alumnae to consider who were the ten most influential alumnae of the University. From these approximately responses, a diverse and varied portrait of the alumnae body emerges. In their deeply personal reflections and memories, the alumnae survey responses are a vital record of the lived experiences of women at one of the premier institutions of the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Essential Science Indicators

Alternative Titles
InCites ESI
Description

Essential Science Indicators is a unique compilation of institutional research performance statistics and trends extrapolated from counts of articles published in scholarly journals and the citations to those articles.

Article counts for Essential Science Indicators are derived from 11,855 journals indexed in Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index only) over a 10-year period. Citation counts for these articles are derived from journals indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index. and Arts & Humanities Citation Index).

Each journal is assigned to one of 22 research fields. In ESI, a journal can be assigned to only one field.  Journals such as Science and Nature are categorized as multidisciplinary since they publish research in many different fields. As a result, individual papers published in these multidisciplinary journals are assigned to a field based on the representation of the cited journals. For example, if the majority of cited references in the paper are to neuroscience journals, the paper is then categorized as neuroscience.

Papers are defined as regular scientific articles and review articles . Letters to the editor, corrections, and abstracts are excluded.

The years shown in ESI reports are publication years, unless otherwise indicated. ESI indicators are calculated from 10 full years of data.

ESI is updated six times a year. The most recent update may add documents published in the previous year, in which case metrics based on the previous publication year may be adjusted.
